therefore subject to sampling error which is relatively larger the smaller 
the estimate. Data not seasonally adjusted. 

2. Includes those laid off for part of the week or on lay-off during the entire 
week, with definite instructions to return to their jobs within 30 days of the

the survey week. 



3. Includes persons who, though having jobs, did not work during the entire 
week and looked for work or would have looked for work only they were 
temporarily ill, on indefinite or prolonged lay-off or believed no work was 
available.

1 Excludes conversions. From 19S1 to 1955 these are estimated to have totalled approximately 3.5, 3.2, 3.8, 4.4, and 4.3 thousand respectively. 2. Based on a 
complete enumeration. 3. In areas outside the centres of 5,000 population and over, information relating to starts and completions is based on a sample survey. 
In the latter part of 1954 the sample was redesigned and enlarged and some discontinuity with previous years resulted. There is probably an understatement of 
total starts and completions and of expenditures in 1954 and earlier years. Total number of starts in 1956 is subject to upward revisionwhen the results of the 
October survey are available. 4. Calendar year figures are the averages of 12 months. 5. Index of average hourly wage i 
Annual data refer to the month of October each year. 6. Expenditures on work put in place. All figures to be revised. 
NOTE: For data back to 1952 see page 78 in the "Financial Supplement 1955"

This classification attempts to distinguish between imports for i 
and imports for consumption, insofar as this is possible within the limita- 
tions of the basic data provided by the trade returns. In the case of most 
finished goods and many component parts, the end-use is reasonably clear, 
although a certain amount of rather arbitrary grouping is unavoidable. 
Finished goods whose end-use cannot easily be determined are included in 
"Other Manufactured Goods" above. In the case of fuels and lubricants 
and most crude and semi-manufactured industrial materials, separate 
categories are provided in the table because imports of these goods enter 



into both investment and consumption. A complete list of items included 

in this classification is available from the ResearchDepartment on request. 

Mainly coal, crude petroleum, gasoline, lubricants, natural gas. 

Mainly textile yarn, fabrics, textile fibres, hides, skins, leather and furs. 

Includes primary metals and products thereof whose end-use cannot clearly 

be distinguished. 

Including synthetic resins, dyes and paints.

From July 1954, in accordance with section 71 of the Bank Act of 1954, 
Bank of Canada deposits are averages of the juridical days in the month 
shown while Bank of Canada notes and Canadian dollar deposit liabilities

Wednesday in the previous month. 

Prior to July 1st, 1954, the statutory minimum requirement was 5 per 
cent for each day; since that date it has been a monthly average of 8 
per cent, calculated as described in footnote •*-.

items are not strictly comparable with those for earlier dates, owing to

1. Excludes conversions. From 1951 to 1955 these are estimated to have totalled approximately 3.5, 3.2, 3.8, 4.4, and 4.3 thousand respectively. 2. Based on a 
complete enumeration. 3. In areas outside the centres of 5,000 population and over, information relating to starts and completions is based on a sample survey. 
In the latter part of 1954 the sample was redesigned and enlarged and some discontinuity with previous years resulted. There is probably an understatement of 
total starts and completions and of expenditures in 1954 and earlier years. Total number of starts in 1956 is subject to upward revision when the results of the 
October survey are available. 4. Calendar year figures are the averages of 12 months. 5. Index of average hourly wage rates including holiday pay allowances. 
Annual data refer to the month of October each year. 6. Expenditures on work put in place. All figures to be revised. t Revised. * Preliminary.

1. Excludes conversions. From 1951 to 1956 these are estimated to have totalled approximately 3.5, 3.2, 3.8, 4.4, 4.3 and 3.6 thousand respectively. 2. Based 
on a complete enumeration. 3. In areas outside the centres of 5,000 population and over, information relating to starts and completions is based on a sample 
survey. In the latter part of 1954 the sample was redesigned and enlarged and some discontinuity with previous years resulted. There is probably an under- 
statement of total starts and completions and of expenditures in 1954 and earlier years. Total number of starts in 1957 is subject to upward revision when the 
results of the June survey are available. 4., Calendar year figures are the averages of 12 months. 5. Index of average hourly wage rates including holiday 

pay allowances. Annual data refer to the month of October each year. 6. Expenditures on work put in place. t Revised. * Preliminary.

1. Quarterly figures are available back to the beginning of 1947. The sources 
are the D.B.S. publications: "National Accounts, Income and Expendi- 
ture, By Quarters, 1947-1952" and "National Accounts, Income and 
Expenditure, First Quarter, 1956" and "Fourth Quarter, 1956". 

2. Accrued net income of farm operators from farm production. This item 
includes the undistributed earnings of the Canadian Vifheat Board, and 
an inventory valuation adjustment for grain held by the Board. 

3. Includes net income of independent professional practitioners. 

4. Includes an estimate of capital outlay charged to current account, the 
claim portion of fire insurance premiums, and bad debt allowances. 

5. Includes expenditure by Federal, Provincial and Municipal governments.

NOTE: F 



enterprises, changes in inventories of government commodity agencies. 
The Defence Production Revolving Fund is included in this item. How- 
ever, shipments under NATO of previously produced military equipment 
are excluded but expenditure for the replacement of new equipment is 
included. 



Includes capital expenditure by government business enterprises. 

In 1955, data were based on a redesigned and enlarged sample and some 

discontinuity with previous years may exist. 

Change in business inventories is the change in the book value. Change 

in "other inventories" is the value of the physical change in grain in 

commercial channels and inventories on farms.

2. The 90-day forward rates are the averages of approximate rates at noon. 
I IN THE "Financial Supplement 1954" and pace 51 in the "Financial Supplement 195S". 



1. The estimates are based on a sample of about 30,000 households and are 
therefore subject to sampling error which is relatively larger the smaller 
the estimate. Data not seasonally adjusted. 

2. Includes those laid off for part of the week or on lay-off during the entire 
week, with definite instructions to return to their jobs within 30 days of the 
date on which lay-off began, provided they did not look for work during 
the survey week.

Toronto, Montreal and Canadian Stock Exchanges. Brokers' loan data are for the last business day of the month and include borrowings from chartered banks , 
trust companies and other sources. Customers' free credit balances are not included. 2. Calculated by the Dominion Bureau of Statistics from Montreal 

and Toronto exchange quotations. Monthly series is an average of Thursday closing prices during the month. * Preliminary. 



The estimates are based on a sample of about 30,000 households and are 
therefore subject to sampling error which is relatively larger the smaller 
the estimate. Data not seasonally adjusted. 

Includes those laid off for part of the week or on lay-off during the entire 
week, with definite instructions to return to their jobs within 30 days of the 
date on which lay-off began, provided they did not look for work during 
the survey week. 



Includes persons who, though having jobs, did not work during the entire 

week and looked for work or would have looked for work only they were 

temporarily ill, on indefinite or prolonged lay-off or believed no work waa 

available. 

Civilian labour force as a percentage of civilian non-institutional population 

14 years of age and over.

This classification attempts to distinguish between imports for 
and imports for consumption, insofar as this is possible within the limita- 
tions of the basic data provided by the trade returns. In the case of 
finished goods and many component parts, the end-use is reasonably clear 
although a certain amount of rather arbitrary grouping is unavoidable' 
Fmished goods whose end-use cannot easily be determined are included iii 
Other Manufactured Goods" above. In the case of fuels and lubricants 
and most crude and semi-manufactured industrial materials, separate 
categories are provided in the table because imports of these goods enter 



in'niR".'!' investment and consumption. A complete list of items included 

m this classification is available from the ResearchDepartment on request
